50 Percent of Canadian Population will be Immigrants by 2036
Despite an ever increasing Anti Immigrant Political backlash in Europe and all around Americas, the country of Canada has been a shining star to immigrants who wish to move to a more developed and safe nation to build the future of their kids.
The Statistics Canada which monitors the population growth and immigrant rates has published their findings and it suggests that immigrants will contribute a lot to the population growth of the country in the coming years.
The first Immigration – Population variant census was conducted in the year 1871 in which 16.7 percent of the Canadian Population comprised of immigrants from various countries. Most of the immigrant population at that time has migrated from countries like British Isle, Germany and USA.
The population comprised mostly of French origins followed by Irish, English, Scottish and German. The most common language spoken in Canada at that time was English followed by French, German and Gaelic speakers.
The statistics Canada based on their research states that due to an ever increasing rise in the immigrant population, by the year 2036 we can expect a major shift in the Country’s language and ethno cultural composition.
